Saturn!

Hello, star sign visitors, There is a planet in our solar system that truly shapes our lives and our world around us. It is not the planet that will bring you fame, fortune, and praises of glory, but it will make you do the job that you came here to do. If you were unwilling to work hard or ignore its demands, well that’s not an option with this planet. In astrology it is known as the drill sergeant of our zodiac. By now you must have pretty good idea that I am going to talk about Saturn.

When we think of sacrifice and service Pisces and Virgo come to mind, but without the help of Capricorn and its ruler Saturn we wouldn’t understand the true meaning of service. Let’s look at the facts( that’s what Saturn rules). When Saturn gets closer to our sun, the moon or any other planet in our natal chart, we start to feel its choke hold in our life. It has been called the planet of restrictions and phobias. At times it will take so much courage and discipline to face the challenges that accompanies this planet’s arrival. Lets look at the pros and cons of living with the Saturn.

It is the planet that breaks our backs, sometimes literally,( it rules structures and bones). When it leaves certain part of our birth chart, it feels like weight has been lifted off of our shoulders. Now what about natal Saturn? the one we were born with at time of our birth(that permanent imprint). As we grow older and live with it for decades, we kind of get use to its challenges. There is never full immunity to its demands, but you kind of say o.k I have been there before. It acts like a joint pain that flares up from time to time, and you know it hurts, but you also know it won’t kill you, as long as you listen to your doctor’s advice, take your medicine, exercise, lose weight, and eat healthy then you can manage your life, but what if you want a break, or get lazy, then there are not many good options. Now, wait a minute, routine discipline work isn’t all that bad, we will get to live healthy long life, get to see our grand children’s graduations and weddings what more could we ask for?

Well, Saturn is that bitter medicine that is essential for our long term survival. When we are young and haven’t been through complete cycle of Saturn(Saturn return at the age of 28 to 30 years) then long term planning is not the part of solution, and any responsibility makes us feels like we are carrying ton of bricks on our backs. Saturn is no easy planet to deal with at times it puts road blocks in our path to slow us down, but as we mature and become wiser we understand the value of restrictions and discipline in our lives.

As Saturn moves through each part of our birth chart our life comes under Its scrutiny, it ask why haven’t we learnt to discipline ourselves, why aren’t we living up to our full potential. Sometimes the solutions and medicine Saturn provides are easy to digest but at other time we may have a great reaction to it. Saturn close to our Sun or the moon can be downright depressing, emotionally draining, and even physically challenging, under tough Saturn cycles we lose strength, get ill, even lose hope, but if we live through its tests, Saturn can be source of great wisdom and endurance.

As long as we live, Saturn will be passing over different points of our birth chart checking for any and all weaknesses, and as other planets move through the heavens and interact with Saturn we will face new sets of challenges, but it is through Saturn’s discipline that we overcome many obstacles in our lives.

Without help from Saturn our zodiac is incomplete, mars energy has no limits or direction, Jupiter’s optimism has no boundaries, Uranus can only bring lighting bolts of ideas that will never see the light of the day, Neptune will see its dreams fade away as a fog. Pluto will ignite strong passion without transformation. All these planets need Saturn to provide the structure and platform.

Our future Mozart, Picasso, and Einstein will need Saturn in their lives. If we want to talk about service we must look at Saturn in our birth chart because that’s the area where we have served all of our lives, it hasn’t been pleasant, it hasn’t been easy but it has meaning and a greater purpose.

Humanity and universe!

We live in a very vast universe with trillions of galaxies and star systems, but in some unknown corner of this vastness exists this tiny little solar systems that is quite unique, it has this planet that is just the right distance from its star and this planet provides right kind of ingredients and environment for life to exist and evolve.

Our universe since the day of its beginning has created vast amount of matter and expands, all species here on earth reproduce and multiply, even a tiny little seed carries inside it a blue print of its growth and expansion, everything in our universe and on this earth carries a message of its intelligence and purpose, we are all seeds of our living universe, we carry within us the blue print or DNA of our universe.

Is it only a coincidence that our species has evolved, and become conscious. Why do we want to search and explore vast distances of our universe, why do we want to create artificial life forms as intelligent as our selves, because it is in our universal DNA or blue print to be inquisitive, to explore, create and change our environment.

Our physical bodies might be limited and dense, but we were provided the gift of subconscious mind that is limitless, and eternal. It is through our mind that we connect and create all reality around us, everything that humans create starts as an idea or a thought.

Conscious is part of our vast universe,  everything within our universe maintains balance. Everything in our universe is in constant motion, yet it maintains its equilibrium, it may not be what  humans consider conscious but our universe has its own breath, and rhythm. We need to understand the language of our universe. we are all seeds of this large conscious. There is deeper connection between universe and humanity. We are all part of our universe, forces that influence our solar system also influence us!

Astrology and human mind!

We live in an era where space, time, human mind and latest technologies are all interconnected. Present day astrologers associate four planets with  human ingenuity, creative thought patterns and development of latest technologies.
We begin with mercury, It rules part of our conscious where we must find facts, logical explanation, proof and evidence for our beliefs. Mercury rules, distances, measurements, mathematics, communication, and technologies.

As we collect all this information and connect the dots, it has to serve a greater purpose. We collect this information but not all of it is useful or needed. Part of our mind that sorts through this information to create a larger view comes under the domain of Jupiter.
There is a great correlation between technological advancement and human capacity to learn at fast pace. Uranus rules electrical signals of our brain, its works at lighting bolt speeds. It is known for new scientific discoveries, it maximizes parts of our brain’s capacity. People with extra ordinary talents and abilities are influenced by its impulses. It rules internet and electricity.

We live in multi dimensional world created by space time, technology and human mind. Science tells us that our universe came to existence out of nothing, but it is difficult concept for human mind to understand. The minute we think about nothing we bring it to existence. In human mind everything holds a value. Just as in present day computers zero is as important as number 1. In our universe black holes hold value even if they are not visible. That’s how Neptune works in astrology. It is point of endings and beginnings, where boundaries of space time and human logic dissolve. With Neptune we learn that there are parallel universes where laws of physics may not apply. Neptune dissolve boundaries between human subconscious and super conscious, it connects us all, it is connections of all things in our universe. It makes us feel the pulse of our universe!

Mutable Signs!

Hello star sign visitors, in past few years we have seen cardinal signs initiate many changes, we are still in process of adjusting to those changes, this process is not over yet. As planets once again move this time to the mutable signs we will need to make many new adjustments. In coming months eclipses will also put spot light on mutable signs( Virgo and Pisces). What can we anticipate as Jupiter moves to Virgo and Saturn makes Sagittarius(mutable sign) its home for next 2 and a half years. What kind of changes can we expect as our focus shifts.

In astrology mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces are known for their flexible nature, creative ideas and communicative abilities. Even though these signs share many commonalities, yet their differences make them quite unique, their most important quality is their flexible nature which can be a great asset in time of need. It is their love for learning, sharing and exchange of ideas that helps them cross boundaries and work together. Lets begin with dual natured air sign, Gemini. Their love for communication surpasses all other signs. They have light hearted breezy quality that makes them masters of airways. They can gather and disperse information at lighting speeds. They are also known for their phenomenal multi tasking abilities. They share their ruler mercury with the Virgo. Virgo builds upon the qualities of Gemini. Mercury works quite differently when it comes to the Virgo. Virgo is an earth sign, which make it dense, practical and logical. It is known as the sign of service. It is most concern with putting ideas into practical use. Its purpose is betterment of our society, this sign’s ability for critical thinking provides it with the focus to pay close attention to the small details that are essential for solving problems. Our health care, food, farming, labor and service industries come under the sign of Virgo. With help of Gemini we create technologies, connect, share and disperse information but with help of Virgo we can correct any flaws and put those technological advancements to good use. It is this sign’s relentless effort, desire for perfection, and exceptional service that brings it applause from others.

Gemini and Virgo are concerned with components, parts, and details, but when it comes to the Sagittarius, it works with same information quite differently. It works through all those ideas and details to draw a full picture. Sagittarius is highly optimistic fire sign. It is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter is jovial planet it brings optimistic view, luck and expansion to everything it touches, it can broaden our vision for our future, it is here to show us the possibilities. Sagittarius rules over laws, various cultures, foreign countries, travel, universities, education, philosophical pursuits, and faith. Sagittarius shares its ruler with Pisces. While Sagittarius gives us broad vision for our future, Pisces goes beyond boundaries and finds deeper connection to unite everything. Jupiter provides us with the global vision while Pisces deals with universal connections. It has Jupiter and Neptune as its rulers. Pisces is water sign. It has emotional intelligence, it deals with our spiritual and emotional needs. With Pisces our faith goes much deeper, and With help from its second ruler Neptune we can learn compassion and sacrifice. Pisces rules over pharmaceuticals industries, sea, fishery, drugs, alcohol, charity work, hospitals, and places of confinement. Movies, photography, music, art and artists come under this sign. It rules subconscious mind. Each of these signs has its shadow sides. Gemini can be shallow, Virgo can be nit picky and critical, Sagittarius can be overly optimistic and miss important details, and Pisces can be unrealistic and dreamy, but mutable signs possess the gift of flexibility, which helps them share ideas for the betterment of everyone. Most of us have natal planets in these signs, so even if we are not born under certain astrological sign we can still understand those energies. During our life span many of heavenly bodies will transit through those signs, so we will have to deal with those energies, regardless of not having  natal planets in those signs.

On the 18th, of September Saturn will move to Sagittarius. Saturn is the planet of authority, control, commitment, long term planning, boundaries, and traditions, while Sagittarius is a sign of independence, expansion, and optimism. These energies are not very compatible. Signs mostly define laws and boundaries under which planet operates, but Saturn restricts whatever it touches, so we may see many things go through Saturn’s scrutiny. Will Saturn define boundaries through which expansion happens? will it reform? Or will it  bring restrictions? Specially with move of Jupiter to Virgo(health, work, labor) soon. Saturn is also about to square(make hard aspect)to Neptune, planet of compassion, faith, and spiritually. Will Saturn bring strong faith but no compassion? Or mutable sign will bring positive changes through dialogue and exchange of ideas?

World of Neptune!

In astrology each planet represents certain energies, let’s look at Neptune, it is known as master of illusions. Its energy impulses can be illusive, inspiring, creative, or maddening. It represents height of glamour and depths of sorrow. Neptune dissolves boundaries between reality and illusion. Let’s see how its influence can be felt in our modern day lives.
Today’s world is filled with glamorous images. It is a place where reality is merging with fantasy. In modern day society everything is shared and glorified on a grand scale, from vast corners of our world billions of people connect and share their lives in technology based cyber world. We live in an era where influences of our outer world can also become part of our digital world. As millions of  images are being broadcasted and vast numbers of stories shared online, we are crossing boundaries of space and time and uniting on a grand scale, that’s how mystical world of Neptune works. Influence of this planet is felt on very subtle level, it works like fog; mist that can’t be contained within boundaries, it inspires humanity towards, unity, compassion and love, but Neptune also has its shadow side where reality merges with illusions, and it is difficult to distinguish between reality and fabrication. Humanity is creating an imaginary world that partly reflects our real world.
This cyber mind connected through vast networks, electric signals, and storage capacity, is a place where humanity shares its impulses. Right now we look at this vast network as wires and connections, but behind these connections are living humans being, these billions of minds are unconsciously contributing and developing a large organism. Will the haze of Neptune that runs through these connections provides it with the soul,( light, love and compassion). Or will we live with Neptune’s shadows? what kind of reflection will humanity see through these mirrors?

Astrological birth chart!

A birth chart is our astrological clock, with 12 numbers representing 12 astrological signs or division of our sky containing 12 constellations. The sun takes a month to pass through each astrological sign, while the moon takes almost a month to pass through all those astrological signs, these celestial bodies work like hands on a clock, the sun moves slowly, while the moon moves much faster.
Now imagine after the birth of a child you had taken a picture of that child, as that child grows and interacts with others, he learns and develops his personality, as he grows he evolves, after many years he may not have anything in common with that picture, but he is still that same person, his hereditary qualities, his DNA, his birth parents, siblings, and relatives will not change, no matter where he goes and how he lives.
In the same way the astrological birth chart can be compared to a person’s infancy, in the beginning it is raw and undeveloped, but with passage of time it will grow into its full potential. It works as person’s foundation, it is a cosmic imprint on a person’s life and it will stay with him throughout his life, and  through this lens he will see the world, learn, and grow.
Our astrological chart contains within itself the story of our life, it not only shows us our interactions with our family, friends, and partners, but also how we interact with the world at large. The birth chart tells the story of our past, present, and of our future possibilities.

New moon May 18th, full moon June 2nd!

Hello star sign visitor, each month we have new moon in a sign, This month we have the new moon on May18th, at 26 degrees Taurus. Let’s see what to expect with arrival of this moon. Taurus is the sign associated with business ventures, financial matters, acquisition of wealth, material security and status. You might have been working on those issues for past few weeks due to the many planets( mars, mercury, Venus) passage through the Taurus, so if you have already put your plans into action, like moved to higher paying job, gotten a raise,  promotion, started saving then you have already started the process, but if for some reason things haven’t worked well for you then this moon is about to energize you to take action. Now this new moon will bring few obstacles and delays due to opposition from the planet Saturn. The same day planet of communication, travel and contracts(mercury) will also turn retro, with this planet of communication retro we need to go back and fix things, get in touch with our past contacts like old friends and colleagues. Dear reader, your opportunities might come from the people  you already know and have worked with.

On the 21st, may the Sun moves to Gemini. Gemini is a duel natured sign, people born under this sign are known for their multi tasking skills. Gemini are also known for their fabulous communication abilities and technological skills, as planets transit through this sign, we will focus our attention on multi tasking, it might become difficult to make choices due to the multiple options to choose from, opportunities may also come through more than one source, but try to refrain from making hasty decision because  mercury will be at hard angle to the Neptune, so you may not have the clear picture of the whole situation, there is a possibility of misjudgment, miscommunication or misunderstanding.

Days between 21st, may through 2nd, June and few day beyond could bring obstacles, around the 21st, 22nd, Saturn will be in opposition to the sun, it is a stressful aspect. Saturn the planet known to rule older and authoritative people, when at odds with the sun could bring forceful and controlling people into one’s life. The sun rules our vitality, energy, and fun so this transit can have depressing or draining effects on people. Saturn also rules structures and bones, rushing to get things done is not a good option, this aspect may bring delays and restrictions. Best way to handle these energies, is to work diligently through the problem and not to rush. Specially 21st, through the 26th, could be time of confusion and miscommunication, you may have to tackle multiple tasks and your attention may also get diverted in many different directions.

Once we are past first few days of June, tides will start to turn and our energy and optimism will return, and as we get closer to mid month mercury will turn direct. We will have new moon in Gemini June 16th. From this point onwards there will be many positive opportunities and surprises coming till the end of June. Mercury will square Neptune in may and part of June, so it would be wise to check all the details before making any commitment because with Neptune comes fog and confusion.
   
Dear reader, this month after the 20th, many planet will transit through Gemini,  if you are working in communication, travel, transportation, or electronics industry then you will be one busy bee, and even if this month brings few obstacles, with the arrival of June your optimism will return and you will start to see the rewards of all that hard work. Mid June you will have many opportunities and surprises coming your way as Jupiter, the sun, and Uranus will be sending positive energies. Now you do need to check you birth(natal) chart to see if these transits effect any natal planet, because it could intensify or reduce those effects. Your birth chart also shows you areas of your life that are being influenced.

New moon in Taurus,( values, possessions, finances, income)
After 21st, sun in Gemini, (education, transportation, electronics, media, internet, communication, youth, siblings, short distance travel, local, smaller parts, sharing of ideas, learning, dispersal of information)
Full moon June 2nd,(Sagittarius, college, university, education, long distance travel, global, faith, cultures, law, publishing, broadcasting, intellectual properties, big picture, optimism)!
May 21st, through 26th, may bring obstacles and delays, rushing things will not help.
Full moon 2nd, June, in Sagittarius makes good aspect to Jupiter, planet of travel, cultures, law, education, faith, opportunities, optimism, but squares Neptune, over optimism, or rushing things could cause problems, Neptune is known to cloud judgment.

The Universe, Planetary Cycles, and Humanity

Hello, star sign visitor, you may be wondering how astrology works? Is there such a thing as planetary cycles influencing people’s lives? Well, dear reader that you will have to decide for yourself. I am here to only present ideas. Astrology is the observation of planetary cycles and its influence on our society. In astrology results are not based on the experiments, knowledge is gained through observation. Present day astrologers are not star gazers, they use modern day technology to chart the maps of our sky, and to calculate the planetary distance and angles.

To understand how astrology works, we must know how forces within our universe work. Our universe was created with an energy blast, and everything around is a part of that energy. Life here on Earth is possible due to the energy of our Sun. Our Earths magnetic field works as a protective shield against the Suns deadly radiation. The Suns gravity keeps the other planets locked in circular motion at a safe distance. All these invisible forces in our universe and here on earth play a crucial role in the survival and advancement of our species. Some of these forces are quite noticeable, but there are other forces in our universe that work behind the scenes to bring changes, such as dark matter, dark energy, and black holes. Their effects on our universe can’t be denied. It is the same way with astrology, we observe planetary energies or forces that work behind the scene to create certain shifts and changes in our society. Astrologers have observed that these changes occur as planets align or make contact at a certain angle.

We live in an interconnected world, and use many modern day technologies, yet we rarely pay attention to the forces behind those advancements. These are electromagnetic waves, microwaves, cosmic waves, invisible to the naked eye, but its effects on humanity through the use of the latest technology cannot be denied. Our televisions, cellphones, satellites, microwaves, and many other modern day developments are possible due to the use of these energy waves. It is due to the use of these energy waves and modern day technology that we can see and hear much farther in distance than ever before. With modern day technology, humans can create vast changes around the world without their physical presence there.

The human body contains billions of cells. These cells perform countless functions without our knowledge. These cells need energy to function and reproduce. If these tiny cells don’t get energy through food, they will stop working properly and it could wreak havoc on our bodies. Our universe functions no different than our bodies. Billions of galaxies and star systems are contained within this large body called the universe, and our solar system is probably like a tiny little cell. We are living inside this tiny bubble, unaware of its influence on us, or our on this planet. Through the study of astrology we learn that we are not separated from the universe around us. Forces influencing larger bodies will also have effects on us.

Our DNA, is invisible to the naked eye but it contains our genetic code. It can, not only tell us what we inherited from our Great Grand-Parents, but it can also show us the possibilities for our future survival. Similarly, astrology shows us that at the moment of our birth, there was a cosmic imprint on our being that will stay with us throughout our lives, and it will work as our foundation upon which we must build. All those planetary transits and cycles are there to guide us with that process.

Thank you for reading.

That Pesky little Pluto!

That pesky little Pluto, some call it dark lord of the under world, others refer to it as planet of death and transformation, even taxes come under its domain. It was discovered in 1930. Its presence has been associated with mass destruction, and transformation. Astronomers had issue with its tiny size, and demoted it to the dwarf planet, but In astrology this little dwarf holds the power of a giant. Regardless of its size and status its influence on society makes it the bully of our solar system. In astrology this little dwarf represents power and wealth, its shadow side turns desire for power and control into obsession. It rules roots and all things that are underground, it exposes the darker side of society. Pluto brings to the surface taboos and hidden issues. Its purpose is to expose and transform.
